Has anyone used PuTTY to flash the EMMC drive from a USB drive on the s905x? I’m trying to make a bootable EMMC drive rather than using an SD card. I’m using the s905x for tracking aircraft and it’s working great as a Raspberry replacement using Raspian bullseye. Any help with links etc. on how to do this would be much appreciated. I’ll admit that I’m a windows user and now diving into Linux.
You can boot via SD card and download the image using wget or a browser. Use xz to decompress and then dd it to /dev/mmcblk0. If you need a writeup, reply to this thread and we will make a formal writeup.
I just followed the steps here and it worked great:
Just write any compatible image to the resulting drive. Of course, this means you are doing it on another Linux computer.
That would be great if you could send a write up. I am running the Raspbian lite software on the s905x and also have an Intel Windows PC. I do have another s905x. Still in a learning curve when it comes to Linux.
You can also flash the eMMC after booting from a MicroSD card. Libre Computer AML-S905X-CC eMMC Flashing via MicroSD Card
Thanks for the tips everyone. Tonight I was able to flash the EMMC from an .img file using the Raspberry Pi imager which is included with the raspberry desktop. I’m now running 3 separate flight tracking programs on the s905x.
